This is a fun activity to do with any colored candy but especially fun at Valentine’s to do with Conversation Hearts.
What you will need for each person:
A graphing sheet
Before you begin estimate how many Conversation Hearts you have then check to see how close you were to the exact number.
1. Print graphing sheet. 2. Classify the hearts by color.
3. Label the X axis ( across the bottom) of the sheet with the colors.
4. Label the Y axis ( along the side) with numbers. 5. Color a square for each heart. If you have 5 pink hearts you color in 5 squares above pink.
6. Talk about the graph. Ask questions like; which color has the greatest or least squares? Are there any the same? How many more or less does one color have compared to another color? What is another way to classify the hearts.
